Rising early has been advocated by many philosophers and Ayurvedic masters like Aristotle and Vaghbata. Waking up early and having a daily routine is said to bring transformative change in body, mind and consciousness. In Ayurveda, misuse of the senses is considered as one of the main causes of disease and imbalance in the body and mind. In Ayurvedic terms this is called prajnaparadha. The daily routine, called as ‘dinacharya’, offers simple everyday practices to sharpen our senses and bring clarity to the mind, so that we naturally gravitate toward desires that are life enhancing.
In dinacharya, waking up early is one of the key things for having a life full of awareness. It can also be very productive, it is seen that people who wake up early are consistently able to accomplish more during the day. This method has been recommended since antiquity and is now recommended by a number of personal development gurus.
Modern research has attested the benefits of early rising. Studies have found that students who wake up early have better GPA’s than night owls (Texas University study) and employees who are early risers are considered to be more pro-active. (Randler)
Sleep experts have suggested that going to bed early and waking up early will make one’s body more in tune with the earth’s circadian rhythms, offering more restorative sleep. Other studies have shown that morning people exhibit character traits like optimism, being agreeable, satisfaction and conscientiousness; whereas, Night owls, while linked with creativity and intelligence, are more likely to exhibit traits like depression, pessimism and being neurotic.
When I'm on vacation my body goes to bed at two in the morning and gets up at 10 and I feel fabulous. Eight hours given when my body wants it is a productive eight hours.
Same! Even if I get a full night's sleep (between 7-9 hours), waking up early (5-6 am) makes me feel lethargic once noon hits. And then I feel exhausted until about 6 pm.
Each person should do what their body dictates. You find that out by listening to your body and following its directions. There isn't a recipe that works for everyone. Some things work for some people but not others. Also, it varies from day to day. Some days I can run a marathon non stop. On other days , I just want to relax on my sofa.
Every healthy person should getup bed at "bhramha muhurta" that is before dawn or around 45 minute before sunrise around 5-6 AM, Keeping in വ്യൂ,the the condition of his body the individual should pass urine and facles,then clean the teeth with herbs astringent,pungent a bitter taste(arka,vata,khadira,karanja,kakuba etc.,) then Anjana(Collyrium),, Navana&Gandhusha(Nasal instillation of drops) Dhumpana(Inhalation of smoke from herbs&spices),,Abyanga(Oil Masaage) Vyayama(Exercise) Snana(Bathing) Udvartana(Powder massage) Betel leaves chewing) Sadvritta(Good healthy conduct) Words of wisdom:Path of righteneousness,Personal Hygene etc., are the Ayurvedic daily routine(Dinacharya)
